Your life is Art

A popular American ‘Pop Artist’ Roy Fox Lichtenstein or Roy Lichtenstein (October 27, 1923 – September 29, 1997) was born in New York City in an upper middle class family. Human figures and even animal figures are quite commonly found as examples of works of this kind. Yet the scope of this style is not confined to the geometric replicas of living beings. In conjunction with abstract forms and styles, any modern art replicating the real world has been referred to this form by the authors of Tate Institute Glossary. According to this viewpoint any figurative works is also representational and abstract creation is a special derivative of the representational art. Moreover, this opinion continues to project that non-representational or non-objective art is certainly not abstract.

Apart from the Cochrane review, we found four other review-cum meta-analyses on music therapy and schizophrenia. Yi et al. 98 reviewed 11 articles, synthesized six RCTs and concluded that short-term effect of music therapy is positive for patients with chronic schizophrenia. They too concluded that short-term effect of music therapy (especially on negative symptoms and general psychopathology) is positive for patients with chronic schizophrenia. Silverman 99 conducted meta-analysis on 19 studies and indicated that music therapy has proven efficacy on psychosis. In addition, they commented that no differing effects of live versus recording, active versus receptive and classical versus non-classical forms were noted. Gold et al. 58 combined all existing prospective studies and examined the influence of study design, disorder type and number of sessions. They found that in schizophrenia patients, music therapy when added to standard care has significant effects on negative symptoms, depression, anxiety and global functioning.

Contemporary artist Michael Cheval demonstrates how the Surrealism movement of the 1920s has influenced modern-day art with his imaginative Absurdist” paintings that grew in popularity in the early 2000s. Like many of the early Surrealists, Cheval uses music and poetry to inspire the subjects he paints in his mesmerizing, often metaphorical paintings. Miu, A. C., & BalteÅŸ, F. R. (2012).

Music has a profound connection to our personal memories. Listening to an old favorite song can take you back years to the moment that you first heard it. A 2009 study done by cognitive neuroscientist Petr Janata at the University of California, Davis, found a potential explanation for this link between music and memory by mapping the brain activity of a group of subjects while they listened to music.

Music Workstation is an electronic musical instrument providing the facilities of: a sound module, a music sequencer and (usually) a musical keyboard. It enables a musician to compose electronic music using just one piece of equipment. Bob and Carol Thompson returned to New York in 1963, renting an apartment on the Lower East Side, not far from the studio of friend and fellow artist Lester Johnson, who helped Thompson get a one-man show at Martha Jackson’s gallery that same year. The show received favorable reviews, and, as Judith Wilson writes, in rapid succession, mainstream art-world doors began opening to the twenty-six-year-old artist.” 8 In 1964, he had solo exhibitions at the Richard Gray Gallery in Chicago and at Paula Cooper’s gallery in New York, after which collector Joseph Hirshhorn purchased a number of his paintings. On the recommendation of Lester Johnson, Thompson was included in Yale University’s influential Seven Young Painters exhibition that same year. He had a second solo exhibition with Martha Jackson in 1965, which brought an unprecedented amount of viewers to the gallery. 9 Thompson left New York at the height of his success and spent the summer in Provincetown. In 1966, he went to Rome, where he required gall bladder surgery. Advised to rest after the operation, Thompson continued at his characteristically vivacious pace, and he died a few months after his surgery. In 1967, St. Mark’s Gallery in New York held a memorial exhibition of his work. Even though listening to a recording to get a song in your ear is easy, try to avoid that method. You may want to hear your favorite artist singing the hit song you’ve chosen to sing, but most recordings differ from the music as it’s written. Of course, if you want to hear and sing a song just for fun, by all means, get out the recording and sing along. Vincent was born in a village of Southern Netherlands, Groot-Zundert. He was the son of Anna Cornelia Carbentus and Theodorus van Gogh, a minister with the Dutch Reformed Church. At an early age of fifteen, in July 1869, he obtained a position with an art dealer, Goupil & Cie at The Hague Gallery. By the age of twenty, Van Gogh was pulling in more greenbacks than his father did. This was also the same time where his first rejection in love happened. This phase marked a series of step down in his life, which can be felt and seen later in his drawings. For the second time again he felt love had failed him, was when his recently widowed cousin Kee, who was seven years older than Vincent, the daughter of his mother’s elder sister, refused his proposal. The girl’s father also made it clear to Vincent that his daughter cannot marry him, as he was not financially sound & strong enough to support and start a family. The rejection affected him deeply and he left for Hague, where his painter cousin-in-law encouraged him towards painting. Another unsuccessful relationship with an alcoholic prostitute drove him further to loneliness and isolation.
